The main activity aims to get students to review the information and compete the table in slide 10 and describe the role played by each area of the government and how it helped Elizabeth I to govern the country. In the past, I have found this a challenging topic to teach so in order to help students make effective notes and demonstrate their understanding of how the Elizabethan government functioned, I have provided them with a table with key summary of how each section of the government worked and a task to get them them to highlight and describe its role and how it helped Elizabeth to govern the country. This activity is followed up by a thinking skills review activity to help support students answer the question, who had the most influence within the government. The next set of activities involves getting student to either use their text books or the information I’ve provided in the next few slides to research the backgrounds of key individuals at the royal court and what we can learn about who held power and how people were promoted at court. If you wish you could print off the information slides on William Cecil, Walsingham, Dudley and Sir Christopher Hatton and use them as mark place activity. This exercise serves as a useful case study and consolidation exercise to help students understand the importance of loyalty and royal favour in helping to advance peoples careers. The aims and objectives for this lesson are: Theme: Elizabethan England Know: What was the Royal Court? Understand: How was the court and government organised? Evaluate: Who held the decision making power in Elizabeth’s court? WILF – What Am I Looking For?

Card Sort Source Analysis - Was Robespierre a hero or villain?

Card Sort Source Analysis - Was Robespierre a hero or villain?

This innovative and creative activity has been carefully designed to help students assess the role played by the revolutionary leader Robespierre during the period known as the Reign of Terror in the French Revolution. This activity involves giving students ten primary sources and four secondary sources written by historians and sorting them under the headings of hero or villain. Once this has been complete, students can then have a go at answering the question: How far was Robespierre a hero who saved the revolution or a villain who betrayed his own values to take control of France?’ I would recommend that this resource should be used with either a core or advanced group as there is a lot of reading, which would be too much for a foundation group with low literacy skills. If you are looking for something a little easier, I have made a another simpler card sort which just looks at the facts. This can be bought separately. This resource makes a great starter or plenary to completed in pairs or groups. It can be cut up the students or placed into envelopes for use with several classes or even set as a piece of homework. Alternatively, your students could draw a table with the two headings ‘hero’ or ‘villain’ and list the sources under them. The aims and objectives are: Theme: The reign of Terror Know: What sort of man was Robespierre? Understand: Why are historical events interpreted in different ways? Evaluate: Was Robespierre a hero who saved the revolution or a villain who betrayed his own values to take control of France? WILF - What Am I Looking For? Identify and describe: Which sources support / disagree with Robespierre being a ‘hero’ or ‘villian’? Explain: Why were Robespierre’s actions controversial? Analyse: Was Robespierre a hero who saved the revolution or a villain who betrayed his own values to take control of France?
